Panasonic’s Newest LUMIX LX100 Compact Camera Shoots 4k Video


Panasonic has unveiled a new LUMIX-branded compact camera that records video up to 3840 x 2160 4k video in MP4 at 30 frames-per-second. And, for extracting video frames to use as stills the camera allows users to grab 8-bit images at 4k-resolution with Panasonic’s “Hybrid Photography 4K Photo” mode. Given the model number DMC-LX100 (or simply LX100), the camera is a descendent of the DMC-LC1 (Panasonic’s first DSLR) and is the sixth generation model from the LX series.

For still images, the LX100 incorporates Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds High Sensitivity MOS sensor that is said to allow subjects to stand out from the background with a stereoscopic effect. And, the sensor is supposed to minimize noise even when shot at higher ISOs, aided by Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter image processing technologies.

The compact camera also utilizes an interchangeable lens system (something you don’t always find with compact cameras) and comes stock with a Leica DC Vario-Summilux F1.7-F2.8 lens, which is the equivalent to a 24-75mm lens for a 35mm camera.

The LX100 is scheduled to start shipping at the end of October. Panasonic hasn’t revealed pricing on the LX100 yet, but we’d expect it to be slightly higher than the DMC-LX7 that released in 2012 with an MSRP of $499.
